Kerala High Court imposed cost of Rs. 50,000 on a writ petition was filed by a person seeking a direction to the Beverages corporation to take a decision to make available potable liquor for delivery to consumers in the State through online platforms.

The petitioner stated that since the outlets are inevitably crowded during business hours, the outbreak of COVID 19 virus has rendered it unsafe for him to visit an outlet for procuring alcohol for his consumption.

Justice AK Jayasankaran Nambiar expressed his anguish in the petition and stated that the conduct in filing this frivolous petition at a time like this, while making a mockery of the salutary concept of access to justice, which this institution strives to guarantee, also ridicules the functioning of this noble institution. For the said reckless, insensitive and insolent action, the petitioner cannot be let away lightly.

The cost is directed o be paid to the Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund, within two weeks.
